I’m not really a dollar short, though it feels like it because I had to pay my mortgage today and that always hurts. Oh, how I miss the days when my rent seemed ridiculously expensive at $535 a month. This has nothing to do with yesterday and how boring I was.
Yesterday I was do deliciously boring and without thought or action that I couldn’t even bring myself to type things at all, on the Internet or otherwise. Between Football and Breaking Bad, everyone on the Twitters was twittering about stuff I know nothing about. So I just opted out of the Internet yesterday. It was glorious.
I got a lot of junk TV watched: Gilligan’s Island, The Brady Bunch, and The Love Boat. I made some delicious chocolate chip cookies, which I brought to Family Dinner. I read about thirty pages in The Winter of the Robots, the new book by my friend Kurtis Scaletta before opting for a nap.
After my nap I spent a little time watching “Friends” reruns while working on a new blanket. I have it in my head that I will make everyone a blanket for Christmas. I think this was my dream last year too. It’s why I have six afghans in various states of started and why my house looks like a yarn store barfed on a used bookstore. We’ll see how this goes. Now that it’s fall, I don’t sit in front of the TV without picking up one of the projects. Also, it’s September and I just mentioned the holiday that should not be uttered until November and I kind of want to kick myself in the knee.
So anyway, Family Dinner was especially good. There was lots of talk about new jobs and Homecoming and girlfriends and murder-suicides. My family had a very newsworthy week. My contributions had nothing to do with news and everything to do with how much I dislike Arcade Fire. Angry Hermits don’t make a lot of news, we just have opinions.
It was a great, great day. It was the kind of greatness that cannot be expressed in mere words.
The “It’s (Insert Day of Week) and I’m Boring” is a series that Christa and I do to pay homage to the beauty of old-school blogging. (I totally copied this nice explanation from Christa).
